To many Christians, Satan is a more powerful deity than the Christian god.
They attribute all manner of fantastical activity to him, even admit that he sometimes makes them do things.
But God can't even keep a Christian from wrecking their SUV, or dying of cancer.
I'd be impressed if either of your deities could create a piece of bubble gum that tastes like pot roast for me.
Willy Wonka can do it.
Some people say Willy Wonka is evil but I disagree, I think he's awesome!

If statan is a deity then so am I :p

Why would I be worried about how you understand or misunderstand a passage?
If you want to know what Paul was talking about, read Paul.
I didn't say you were worried luv but I'm not going to debate Biblical interpretation with you. Just try not to assume you know what I have and have not read. Someone suggested I follow the teachings of Alice in Wonderland, I might go try it.

For the record, this Christian thinks statan has no power at all, that's why he lies so much, otherwise no one would pay him any attention.

Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.(John 6:28-29)

The people wanted to know what they could DO to work the works of God, and Jesus told them to simply BELIEVE on Him, whom He (the Father) had sent. Jesus cut right to the chase after they asked Him that question. He simply told them to BELIEVE! It is all about FAITH, and that FAITH must be in Him. That is the very crux of the matter, in this whole matter of SALVATION, and where a person is going to spend eternity. It is all about a persons attitude toward Jesus Christ. Do you BELIEVE in Him whom the Father has sent down from Heaven?

I do Clownie

Still passive-aggressive. It's not rude to observe someone's behavior and confront them with it. Still no persecution points for you.

And you've been much ruder to me than I have been to you. Do you see me crying over it like you do? Nope. There is no reason to get upset over an anonymous person says if it is not true. If it is true, then it's time to take a second look and see if you can remedy it.

But so far, you haven't been honest enough for me to worry about anything you say.

It's a long-running joke that I don't have the time or inclination to explain.

You should know by now that if I say something, I'm not just making sh*t up. Unless I'm making sh*t up, and you'll know it.
First I gave you ample opportunity to give all the different definitions for gods and deities and angels, and such. You compared a deity with a god.
Now try the one book that you forgot to reference.
2 Corinthians 4:4
"The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God."
Who is Paul talking about in this passage? He mentions him by name in 2:11.
So once again, who is wrong? The "Word of God" or you?
Your jar of clay is empty.
BAM!!

I and many others understood that passage differently, god of this age; meaning people who are of the world and behaving in the way statan wants them to and has tricked them into with his many lies, catering to the flesh, instead of being of God. Like humanism, satanism etc... I don't think it means to say that statan is a deity or a god, on it's own the passage can look that way but with the rest it doesn't. It's a matter of interpretation, like everything else in the Bible, thus the need for the Holy Spirit. My point is that a fallen angel cannot be a deity, not even if he tricks people into worshipping him, I think this passage expresses this in a way too and though my opinion and interpretation means less than nothing, statan is no deity by the very definition of the word.
I do, however, see your point.*forehead slap to myself*
Who the hell is 'statan'? You keep mentioning him or her, but since there is no such deity in your book, I just had to ask.

Thanks for personally confirming the depths of your hypocrisy.
It's been a pleasure to find out just how big a phony and a liar you really are.
All the way back in the "Christian Lies Exposed" days you tried so hard to mask your mediocrity.
If these people knew the truth, eh?
I'm always happy to help a confused Christian.

Passive aggressiveness has it's uses. I was only rude to you when quoting your own words to others back to you, you think being direct gives you license to be rude and judgemental and hypocritical, I learnt, from wiser people than myself and you (but that's no challenge), that it does not. You want direct? Done. Just remember your words.

Yet you will not leave me alone, hmmm....I wonder what a Psychologist would say about that.
